A Card to a Friend
I have a friend that has been sick for a while and I wanted to send a card that is humorous as well as thinking of her.
I just bought the Elizabeth Crafts Oval Accordion die last week and would advise looking at some tutorials such as Dr. Sonia's besides looking at the instructions for the first one made since it was a challenge for me and had to throw away the first two cards.
I made the rose from Cherry Lynn Designs Medium Rose die. I love using the Cherry Lynn Design flowers and leaves for most of my cards. I use tacky glue to make my flowers most of the time. I struggle using a glue gun for flowers since the glue dries so fast.
The banner in the front of the card was made using the Spellbinder Label die and was stamped with the Paper Inspiration stamp.
Paper is from Graphic 45. I love using burnt orange and sage green often and is probably my favorite color combination.
Leaves were made using Cherry Lynn Designs Ivy Strip and Leaf Flourish.
Top of card is a Spellbinder die.
Side of Card is from Marianne Designs.
I used Art Impression Stamps for the doctor, saying "Yep..." and for the nurse and colored them with Copic Markers.
Sentiment is from Paper Inspiration stamp bought years ago.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Dies R Us Challenge #27: Flags and/or Banners
Scrapy Land Challenge #20: Favorite Color Combo and use a Scrapy Land Brand
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Simon Says Use Your Favorite Technique and/or Product
